CommentI have played with this image and I am still not happy with it, exposure, highlights, shadows, whites and a bit of contrast. I haven’t adjusted the WB. For me it’s too dull, bright, perhaps anaemic, there is something that is not right with it. It was taken at nearly 2pm so certainly not a good time but I was there and a pair flew in so I couldn’t resist, my ISO was probably too high, do you think? I had taken shots at sunrise but the edges of the dam were in shade so the images were noisy and lacked detail. I would really appreciate some feedback, thanks in advance.
